Information literacy standards in higher education : Attitudes among management, teachers and librarians within a university college (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this Master thesis is to study how management, teachers and librarians at the university college Swedish school of sport and health sciences (GIH) view information literacy (IL) as a standard in higher education. I have used a sociocultural theoretical perspective, as the focus being on co-operation within the institutional context. The following questions are focused on: Of what importance are the control documents concerning IL as a standard in the educational program? How do the respondents view the value of, and the responsibility for, IL as a standard in the educational program? What are the conditions for co-operation at GIH to reach the standards of the higher education act? The methodology used is qualitative case study. Six qualitative interviews were carried out in order to describe the attitudes of the management, teachers and librarians related to this subject. Qualitative content analysis was used to analyze the interviews. The results show that the respondents regard facilities and control documents as important tools for improving the schools strategies to meet IL standards. Improved co-operation between staff and improved IL among teachers, as well as embedding IL in subject courses, was seen as important factors for future development of students’ IL. My conclusion is that it, with a sociocultural perspective, is possible to create adequate prerequisites for learning, where students are seen as responsible for their own education, and where the focus is on preparing students for working life.
